The coastal wetland of Nea Kios in the eastern Peloponnese, close to the picturesque town of Nafplio, is a well known destination for Greek birders. It is one of the best places to look for waders and gulls, with Red Knots, Bar-tailed Godwits and other rare visitors being rather regular there. Nevertheless, it has also gained a reputation for being a "magnet" to rare birds; In 2013, a Blue-cheeked bee-eater was seen and now, an Isabelline Shrike was found in the same area.
|The Isabelline Shrike has less than 10 confirmed records in Greece|
|Large (for Greek standards) number of birders visited the area to look for the bird|
